KAIROS PUBLIC FORUM: THE REAL JESUS CHRIST OF HISTORY

KAIROS PUBLIC FORUM

THE REAL JESUS CHRIST OF HISTORY

Jesus of The Bible
versus
Jesus of the Documentaries (National Geographic/Discovery /BBC)

Date: Friday, 20 November 2009
Time: 8.30pm – 10.30pm
Venue: Hall 1, Dream Centre
2 Jalan 13/1, Seksyen 13
46200 Petaling Jaya
Selangor, Malaysia

Influential networks like National Geographic, Discovery and BBC Channels are  propagating new portraits (or fabrications) of Jesus that distort if not contradict what Christians traditionally believe about Jesus for 2000 years.

This Kairos Public Forum seeks to explain why these TV producers rely on pagan Mystery Religions and 2nd century Gnosticism texts to reconstruct new portraits of Jesus, what methods and assumptions inform the scholars who advise these media channels for their distorted views of Jesus.

The Forum also offers evidence for the integrity of the New Testament Gospels as reliable historical records of Jesus’ life and ministry and critiques popular images of Christ in contemporary society.

    Hi Kam Weng,

    I am very interested to attend and listen to this forum, but I am also worried that some of the better documentaries such as BBC’s three part series by Jean-Claude Bragard with Tom Wright as the consultant would be lumped together in the same category as those which are sympathetic or championing gnostic beliefs.

    I hope my fears are unfounded tomorrow.
